I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.

My Review

Bring Down the Stars is a love triangle romance based on the play, Cyrano de Bergerac.

“Unrequited love. The most painful kind.”

Weston didn’t come from wealth. His dad left when he was young, making it a rough road for he, his mom, and his sisters. His luck changed when he was allowed entrance into a private school where he met Connor and was also able to show his true potential. These two became best of friends. Leaving high school, they both decided on the same college. That’s where their life would change, their friendship would be tested, and the girl of their dreams would be found.

“I have loved you with both Hands tied behind my back Bound with pen and ink Paper and words Sealed with someone else’s name until this moment in which I am nothing but a man who loves a woman. There is nothing left to say Except to give all of my heart For you.”

Wow! I don’t even have words to adequately express how I feel after just finishing this novel. My heart soared and plummeted throughout the pages. And at the end, I completely lost it. Every swirling fantasy of life-altering love came slamming down on me with the most fierce pain but also a certain level of fulfillment.

“You have a thousand hearts’ worth of love to give. A thousand tears may fall when one heart breaks. But never cry for shame.” He cupped my chin in his thick hand. “Even love lost was well-spent.”

Bring Down the Stars was a unique love triangle. My heart was pulled for Connor, Autumn, and Weston, each one of them having such attractive qualities. But, I definitely fell heart-over-head for Weston. From the beginning, he was the auspicious underdog, the one you cheer for because he won’t do it for himself. I LOVED this man. But I also understood Connor and felt sorry for him. He was a good guy. And he deserved love too. Autumn had a vibrant and caring soul. I could see why she affected these men in such a strong way. All three of these characters seeped into my pores and lit a candle to stay awhile.

“For you, I would bring down the stars, wreath their fire around your neck like diamonds, and watch them pulse to the beat of your heart.”

I completely lost myself to Bring Down the Stars, hanging on every word, slight touch, stolen glance, and secret. It was the perfect start to the series.
